This Just In: Invasion Info, Demonic Recipes, & Happy Dogs That Could Kick Your Ass

It’s no secret that I’m fascinated by both (as of this writing, there have been only two) World Wars. Simply because about six months or so, I learn some new insane fact about the conflicts. Nothing so far has beaten aircraft carrier submarines, though. So when I saw the Kickstarter for The Neptune Monograph Project, I leapt on it. This is the document that was used for D-Day planning and was the highest level of Top Secret (BIGOT) they had (except for Double Secret BIGOT). The end result is ba...

Activists work to stop ‘barbaric’ practice of spaying pregnant dogs at Southern California shelters

This shepherd mix, affectionately called “Mommy” by her foster mom, Lacey Tygenhof of Fullerton, feeds her 12 hungry puppies on on Sunday, January 13, 2019.

New dog mascot for Aspen hotel

If you needed a reason to visit Aspen this winter besides world-class skiing, this adorable Bernese mountain dog is it. The St. Regis Aspen has just named Kitty Jacob Astor II, a Bernese mountain dog puppy, its new official mascot. His unique name is inspired by the dog owned by St. Regis founder John Jacob Astor IV, who also had a dog named Kitty in 1904 — an example of the founder’s unique sense of humor.

How to visit Museum of the Dog

New York City has some of the best museums, but it was lacking a very important one: a museum dedicated entirely to dogs. On February 8, however, the American Kennel Club’s Museum of the Dog is opening its doors at 101 Park Avenue, and it’s a dog lover’s dream. The museum first opened in New York in 1982 on Madison Avenue, then moved to Missouri. Now, it’s coming back home. It will be home to several hundred paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints, sculptures, bronzes, and porcelain figurin...

My dog's medical insurance is paying off big time

My dog had some pretty massive surgery. Pet insurance did what it was supposed to do. I will start with the absolute shame I feel: the first thing I said to my veterinarian, as she told me my 125 lb Great Pyrenees rescue, Nemo, likely needed double CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) surgery, was "Fuck, what will that cost me?" My first thought should have been "How the fuck will get a very sedated 125 lb dog with a sawed on knee up three flights of 23 total stairs?" because, as my veterinarian...

What Takes Place In An Animal Communication Session

I have a story to share with you. I think you may already know parts of it – how my dog Max was diagnosed with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction in the spring of 2018 and how we’ve been following holistic, alternative and allopathic courses which help Max as this disease progresses. But the other day something occurred that scared the bejeezus out of me. Usually there are precursors to one of his episodes: panting, pacing, stress yawning, starring off into space. These harbingers tell me it’s time to...

Tissanes for Man’s/Woman’s Best Friend

My daughter rescued an older dog, Mavis, about a year ago. Jennifer was willing to adopt an older dog and said she’d be interested in a dog that was 4-6 years old. She found Mavis and fell in love. Mavis is deaf and going blind but that’s not stopping her at all. She was found in Alabama with 74 dogs who were locked up in cages and surviving in horrible conditions. We’ve all heard stories of similar abuse but meeting Mavis brought the issue home to me on a different level. A trip to the vet unc...

Researchers have identified an area of the dog brain dedicated to processing human faces

If you want to know about the special relationship between human and canine you need only watch a dog owner slavishly feed, cuddle and clean up after her furry companion, day after day after day. But is this unique cross-species relationship also reflected at a deeper level, in the workings of the canine brain? A recent study in Learning and Behavior suggests so, finding that highly trained dogs have a dedicated neural area for processing human faces, separate from the area involved in processin...

Drug-sniffing doggo OD'd at EDM cruise ship checkpoint, given Narcan, will be OK

Jake the police dog was screening passengers boarding the Norwegian Epic cruise ship for the Holy Ship! EDM festival on the ocean. Jake alerted his police officer companion that he smelled something suspicious but then became visibly sick. "(The dog) started having some problems with balance and had some type of seizure incident of some sort, was showing effects of having inhaled some substance," Tod Goodyear, a Sheriff's Office spokesman, told WFTV.

How activists waged a successful campaign to save Snowball’s unborn puppies, even though LA shelter policy still stands

Snowball’s eyes seem entirely too large for her fluffy white face. And, if you look closely at her photo on the Los Angeles Animal Services’ website, her belly seems too large for her fluffy white body as well. This damsel-in-distress was in a family way when she arrived at the South Los Angeles Animal Care and Control Center on Jan. 5 and was assigned Animal ID No. A1832899. Snowball appears to be a poodle-Bichon mix, weighing 19 pounds, including those four or so gestating pups. She is about ...

They look cute, but should we rescue Romania’s street dogs?

Well-meaning Britons are saving abused dogs from hellish public pounds and death by cannibalism. So why are they making some experts anxious?On a dank, dreary winter afternoon, I have come to a farmyard just outside the M25 in Essex to meet – among others – Karine, Anna, Tommy Lee and Eskimo Joe. Tommy Lee and Eskimo Joe are from Romania, and are dogs. Rescue animals, hoping (if dogs can hope) to be adopted. Tommy Lee is missing a front leg – most probably from a traffic accident in Brasov, Tran...

New for 2019: California bans sales of puppy mill/kitten factory animals at pet stores

While other states rang in the new year with champagne and fireworks, California celebrated 2019 by making history. On Jan. 1, we became the first state in the nation to bar pet stores from selling dogs, cats and rabbits unless they come from animal shelters or rescue groups. In California, that’s just how we roll. The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act (A.B. 485) was introduced by California assembly member Patrick O’Donnell and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown back in 2017. The act specifies that ...

CBD Oil for Dogs with Lymphoma – Cannabis Treats Can Help

Dogs are man’s best friend. In fact, dog owners seldom consider their pet dogs as mere pets. They consider them to be their family members. If you also have a dog at home, you will understand this statement. Whether it is dog food or dog bed or even a dog leash, you always strive to get the best for your four-legged family member. You will be surprised to know that dogs also suffer from multiple health complications just like humans. In fact, one of the most dreaded health ailments is lymph...

"TSA to deploy more floppy-ear dogs because they're less scary than pointy-ear dogs."

The LA Times reports. But TSA Administrator David Pekoske said... “We find the passenger acceptance of floppy-ear dogs is just better,” he said. “It presents just a little bit less of a concern. Doesn’t scare children.”Had you ever noticed the floppy-ears/pointy-ears difference in scariness? I don't know about the ears per se — clearly a German Shepherd is scarier than a Labrador Retriever.
